Last FO of the year

Posted on | January 5, 2009 | 3 Comments

I eeked out a final FO in the form of a pair of baby socks for my husband’s childhood friend’s 4 day old baby. The pattern is Ann Budd’s Better than Booties Socks. I forgot to continue the chevron lace pattern down the foot, but I think they still look okay. It was kind of hard to knit with the dark blue yarn and I only had my mother in law’s mother’s old 8 foot inch double pointed needles to work with (since I left my double points at home), but otherwise this was an enjoyable knit.

It’s my first short row heel and toe and I’m hooked. I love the way it looks!

I hope everyone had a good holiday.

    Aw, so cute :) I find that non-short row heels fit my heels better, but I don’t know about baby heels!
